Ceremony begins promptly at 6:00 PM. Students are asked to arrive between 5:15 and 5:30 PM and limit the number of guests to 5 family or friends.
Students will need to be dropped off and enter through the South facing entrance that says “Welcome Center”.
Family and friends will need to park and enter through the East facing entrances. Since students will be walking in to pomp & circumstance, family and friends will not be allowed to wait with students and will need to take their seats in the main auditorium.

Metro Technology Centers' intention is to host in-person program completion ceremonies for our class of 2023. However, if the pandemic prohibits our ability to safely hold in-person ceremonies, our district leadership will notify students and families of alternative plans.
